Linn School, Marion, OH

The Linn School at 2481 Marion-Bucyrus Road on State Route 4, about two miles north of Marion, OH, was built in 1897 and restored in 2003. While most one-room schoolhouses of that period have been adapted to new use, vanished or fallen into disrepair, the Linn School survives because it was rescued by two brothers, Oliver and Merle Hamilton. The Hamiltons restored the building, interior included, to the period of 1909-1913 when they attended the school and donated the school to the Marion County Historical Society to use for educational programs. Visitors to the school are transported back to a time when tin lunch pails, a pot-bellied stove, McGuffey readers, desks with inkwells and fold up seats, and a recitation bench were the norm.
